aches and pains
I have been in constant pain for the last 3 weeks now. My entire body aches... from my head to my toes, especially from the hip to my knees. I am not getting enough sleep as the pain keeps me awake for hours. As a result I am exhausted. Have tried Triplene, ibubrofen and spasmend. nothing helps for very long. Please help. I am desperate now.
Also on meds for hi blood pressure

Dear Mo
Have you been to a doctor yet? There may be a viral infection causing miositis or myalgia that is the cause of this? You have been treating this with relevant medication but I think someone should try and identify the source of the pain and treat that first?
